Philly Throttle’s Adam Cramer Talks Motorcycles With EmpireCovers For Candid Interview

Each month, EmpireCovers interviews a local expert to showcase local industry expertise and talent. This month we met with Adam Cramer, star of Philly Throttle.

This motorcycle mechanic’s knowledge goes beyond repair and maintenance. Cramer is also a wordsmith with a love for Philadelphia. When I asked if he would sit down for an interview, he obliged. I soon noticed Cramer wasn’t used to sitting down. He’s always on the go, so he answered my questions as he repaired a café racer motorcycle.

Maintaining a motorcycle while it is in good condition is the most important part of motorcycle care. Cramer talks about his EmpireCovers motorcycle cover and his favorite features. Protect your bike, whether it’s stored indoors or outside with EmpireCovers.

Watch the full interview:

Liberty Vintage Motorcycles is located in the heart of Philadelphia’s Fishtown district. From the outside, a large metal gate and chains secure the shop. For those lucky enough to go inside, the shop is a wonderland of vintage motorcycles. I didn’t count the number of bikes, but I would guess it’s in the hundreds. There were rows of Harleys, Triumphs, Hondas and more.  If you look up, you’ll see motorcycles literally hanging from the ceiling. There’s also a helicopter. Yes, a helicopter.

The shop is definitely a hidden gem. The first Friday of every month, the art community opens its doors to showcase local talent and pieces. Cramer also opens his doors. Local bands play, there is a keg and everyone has a good time. From time to time, people ask Cramer where the art is displayed. His response is “everywhere.”

For Cramer, it’s a work hard, play hard attitude. He admits that he never wants to lose sight of what’s important to him – the motorcycles. Each bike has its own story and beauty. While he doesn’t want to know how many motorcycles he has, he appreciates them all the same. He even called himself the motorcycle Casanova.
